Toronto Italia won the National Soccer League championship and playoff championship in the 1957 season.
Peter Bosa was the president of the club and Danny Della Rocco was the secretary.
The Italia club finished the season in first place in the final league standings with 41 points, two points more than Polish club White Eagles. The “German” club Olympia finished in third place with 36 points.
With a sound defense consisting of goalkeeper Silvio Gaspari, right fullback Mario Pizzuti and left fullback Angelo Romanin, the Italians let in the fewest goals of all the teams during the 1957 league season.
Italia’s half-backs included D’Árcangelo and Danilo Guerra. The forward line was led by stars like Angelo Guadagnini, Pete Cassin and Beppi Schiaebel. 18- year old outside left Bruno Bertolin also started to make his mark for Italia.
